Goalkeeper Adrian will be staying at London Stadium for at least the next two seasons after the club triggered an extension to his contract according to the latest reports.

Adrian joined the Hammers in 2013 after impressing then boss Sam Allardyce and goalkeeping coach Martyn Margetson while he was at Betis in his native Spain.

Since making the move to West Ham Adrian has made over 100 appearances from the club and become Bilic’s number one choice until a mistake against Stoke City moved Darren Randolph ahead of him in the pecking order.

The Spanish international has recently regained his place as West Ham’s number one and after keeping two successive clean sheets – including one against old nemesis Stoke – appeared to have cemented his place in the team.

Last week’s 4-0 hammering at the hands of Liverpool won’t have done his cause any favours but it at least seems for now with the contract offer he has the backing of his manager.

West Ham fans have been reacting on social media to Adrian’s new deal:

@UberWestHam I think he average as is Randolph both good on their day but prone to clangers still think new blood is required but that sums up wholeteam
